Calling All Helpers!

Just when we think we have one event out of the way another one comes along!

You will be aware that the club has an event at King's Garn on Saturday 7 December 2019. If you are able to assist on the day please can you let me know. If you can also confirm whether you would prefer to help with an early or late shift that would be useful. The normal half price run for helpers  will apply.

Unfortunately the planner will be unable to get involved with the forest team so assistance with controls will be gratefully received. 

If you are a member of the club who has not yet been involved with helping at an event and are interested please just let me know and I can explain some of the tasks.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you -

More MapRuns

MapRun logoFollowing on from the success of last month's MapRun training/social I'm pleased to say that we now have two more lined up for you. For those who weren't able to make the first one, the format is a 45-minute street score with a mass start. The controls are all "virtual" but those with a smartphone can use the MapRun app to receive a notification when they're reached the correct location.

How you choose to spend the time is up to you: you can race the clock to try to score maximum points, use it as an opportunity to practise map reading and planning on the run, explore a new area at walking pace, and/or pair up with a club-mate to spend the time more sociably. The choice is yours! You can even skip the orienteering entirely and just join us for some food/a drink afterwards!

Pete Davis is planning this month's MapRun around Romsey on Tuesday 26th November and, next month, Rob Finch will give us a tour of Shirley on Thursday 12th December. Both will start at 7 pm. Get those dates in your diary! As before registration in advance is required so that we can print the right number of maps. Register now for November and December!
